SANDF Employee Review

It was the most wonderful time of my life

There was exercises, training, cleaning up>typical day I learned more about myself as a person and other people around me. I cant complain about the management. My fellow troops were the best. The hardest was actually when we had to sleep in the winter in a tanker with very thin blankets, but hey that is part of training. the most enjoyable shooting,blowing up things and the training overall.

Same role

i gained lots of skills, drilling and shooting to mention few.

It fun, it just need lot of discipline, passion and commitment. Trust and togetherness is a must. Because it demands safety. Being taught how to jump from an aircraft was the best. But the selection of the jump course was the worst, being hammered for 72hours non stop. With heavy equipment and only water, no food.

Pros

pride for me, i would say. but getting pocket money when going on course is a moral-booster

Cons

knowing that chances of you being killed with a bullet are 80%. but i volunteered
